Maggie (my almost 5 year old) is either blessed or cursed with a dad like me. I was so excited to see the new FP3 player from Fisher Price announced earlier this year, so I told Santa that Maggie just had to have it. I was not (I mean she was not) disappointed.
As far as MP3 players goes, it’s pretty straightforward. In fact, Maggie has it pretty much figured out. There’s a button for stories and a button for songs. Then, just a previous track button on the left and a next track button on the right followed by a play/pause button on the bottom.
The software works great too . . . just install the program and you have a store to purchase new songs or stories. I like the fact that you can add your own songs to the player (there’s an import from CD option). There’s a pink version and blue version and they’re extra tough (rubberized and heavy duty for dropping accidents).
Also, the volume on the unit is limited, so it won’t accidentally hurt her ears. I think the price is around $50 and it holds around 128 MB of audio. I’m sold, just thought I’d share the joy to give your kids an alternative to TV!
